The primary purpose of the Council Bluffs Library Foundation is to enhance services to the Library. It is to assure a continuing source of support in the best interests of the Library - for the benefit of ALL. In 2017, funds were provided to redo the Library website, remodel the 2nd floor, purchase new computers for Teen Central, funds for Staff development, security and to all library departments for programming.
